Working things out, using woefully incomplete information, in 300 words or less.
Thank you for this wonderful article. I wish I'd had that information earlier when my mother started her decline. It would have saved both of us a lot of grief and frustration. Toward the end, though, I did wise up to just "going with the flow" instead of challenging her on everything she said. When she said she'd had a visit from a long dead friend, I just told her that was nice of her to do that. Who knows? Maybe she did come to see her. Stranger things than that have happened. :)
